- Participants may not play on more than one team per sport unless one of those teams is in a Co-Ed League offered within that sport.
- All participants playing for a team must be on a team’s roster prior to the game. Roster additions can be made daily and players are eligible to play if added before play begins. Players not on the team roster may be added by hand by the Intramural Supervisors, but the team risks forfeiting the game if that player is not on the roster or did not join before game time. Additions can be made up until tournament play begins. If a player has previously been placed on another roster, the player cannot participate on any other team.
- Former professional athletes are ineligible in the sport of their profession and all related sports, but are eligible for all other non-related Intramural events.

Any second infraction on using a false ID will result in a player being suspended for the remainder of that season from all Intramural sports.
